OF MY CAR.

it sounds weird...its really hard to explain. almost sounds squishy.... going over bumps, its like a squishy semi squeeky sound... what is it? i hope its shocks or something, so i can ditch my current suspension.

Re: strange noise coming from my rearend. (bigmak)

beat me to it. its your rear shocks. usually you hear them when goin over speed bumps. stock ones can sound like that even if they are still good, but if they are aftermarket, chances are they are shot.

Re: strange noise coming from my rearend. (GotEuroCorrado)

oh yeah, here is a good test to see if your shocks are shot.
push down on a back corner of your car. the car should return to the original height with only a slight amount of bouncing (ie the car moves up and settles real quickly). if it keeps bouncing then you've found your problem (dead shocks).
